to simply come up for a vote. but he's got problems, including his number two, eric cantor, doesn't like, he can't support what the senate passed in such a lopsided vote and it looks like there's going to be a vote maybe tonight on new legislation which if it's passed by the house would then have to go back to the senate. >> reporter: that's right. first of all, let's talk about your question about the house speaker. he, i am told by several people in this meeting today, was very intentionally did not give his opinion. he didn't say whether he supports or opposes this bill. eric cantor did and he was certainly sending a signal to conservatives and making clear his personal position for good reasons. as the speaker goes, he really, i'm told, was told to just listen to concerns of the members. but it is true that if they do amend this, that it would have to go back to the senate down the hall here and it would have to be passed by thm or not. the other thing, just to sort of play this out a couple of days, there's a new congress sworn in on thursday, in just two days. if they don't finish this
, governor cuomo, we met with eric cantor, who by the way, kept his word throughout this, and the bill was drawn. we were promised that it would come up yet. we provided every penny of documentation, and the speaker of the house of representatives walked off the floor, didn't even give us a courtesy of a notice, told as ann -- -- so there's some dysfunction in the leadership, the speaker for some reason is taking it out on new york, long island and new jersey, speaker boehner is the one. he walked off the floor, refused to tell us why, refused to give under the circumstances any indication of warning whatsoever, and eric cantor met with us throughout the week, he devised the strategy how to bring it to the floor to make it acceptable to let the republicans who wanted to vote against parts of the bill, they could do that, but the bill was going to pass. the bottom line is here. the republican speaker walked off the floor without allows the vote. i'm just saying these people have no problem finding new york, these republicans, when they're trying to raise money. they raised millions in n
leader eric cantor came up and said i do not support this bill. mike emanuel back at his post on capitol hill. there was speculation, was this a move by cantor to create some friction? there will be a vote on speakership thursday when the new congress goes in, the 113th congress, noon on thursday. i guess his people are saying that that is not the case at all. >>> well, that's right. they definitely were trying to walk us away from thinking that there s some soap opera going on here in the republican leadership in the house. but it has been a bruising fight in recent weeks for speaker john boehner. remember, he was negotiating with president obama and walked away from the talks and brought up a plan b. and had 40 or 50 of his members say we will not support, that the idea of raising taxes on those making more than a million dollars. behind closed doors is sunday night with the house republican conference multiple sources inside the room told me he got a standing ovation when thanked his rank and file for their support during this fight. so as of sunday night it sounded like the gang was
the eric cantor saying he does not support this bill. and that sent shock waives, really through the washington. as he was making this public and blunt statement. then they had a series of meetings really behind closed doors to get a path forward here. >> yeah. and it was very significant. some people started to speculate. it was just conjecture that there may be a sism between house speaker john boehner and eric cantor. they seem to be much more on the same page much more in the past year or so. it was interesting that they walked down to the final conference meeting. eric cantor and john boehner walked down the center steps to the capitol. to the basement of the capitol soldier to soldier symbolic gesture that they were together and on the same page even though they might see this differently. the house speaker often does not vote on basement john boehner was concerned. he had some skepticism about this bill. but his responsibility as the speaker is to lead. and he didn't see too many ways out of this culled sack. he said look if we can get the votes possibly to go through the
has the inside track. >> let's do something more topical, which is john boehner and eric cantor. the atmosphere up on capitol hill has been like the roman senate for a long time now. these folks working together in leadership, but even over a year ago, politico was running an article saying boehner and eric cantor call for a truce, talking about a year of behind the scenes bitter fighting. their staffs were trying to find a way to work together. speaker vote is coming up january 3rd. boehner had a bad beating in the plan "b" vote. you don't think this is going to get better, do you? >> the main thing he has going for him in that rivalry is he has the worst job in the world. >> really, the worst job? >> certainly the worst job in congress. basically, speaker boehner has to sit there and eat a lot of stuff that you wouldn't necessarily eat because there are a lot of republicans who basically want to emote, they want to act up. and speaker boehner just has to take it and try to hammer deals. and eric cantor goes into his role, he has to do the same thing boehner has to do. >> the s
learned that house republicans may be staging a revolt. eric cantor and his peers rallying for amendment. namely, they want to add $330 billion in spending cuts to the bill. take it to 5:00 p.m. yesterday. the house gop meets again. by now, the senate has warned them they will not entertain amendments. and sure enough, the gop opposition can't gather enough support to pass those amendments anyways. which brings us to late last night. just after 11:00 p.m., house members vote on the senate measure as is. they approve it 257-167 sending it to the president's desk. it's interesting to know that 16 democrats voted against the measure while 85 republicans voted for it. >>> behind the scenes, the level of tension you can imagine between the party leaders extremely high evolving into nasty name-calling. harry reid had publicly said that speaker boehner was running a, quote, dictatorship in the house but this morning, politico is reporting on friday when the men saw one another some the lobby of the white house, they reportedly told reid to go blank yourself. politico said that multiple sources
on the fiscal cliff bill that the senate passed overwhelmingly last night. house majority leader eric cantor appears to be the leading person against the bill because it does not contain spending cuts. house speaker john boehner has taken a position. democrats are urging him to schedule a vote on the bill as it stands now. >>> prince william county officer is being remembered for his years of service to the community. motorcycle officer chris young was killed yesterday when he collided with a minivan. flowers and crosses sit at the site of the accident. he spent seven years on the police force. >>> it is cold out there today. and some folks are getting sprinkles in some areas. >> veronica johnson is here to tell us what to expect the rest of the week. >> hey will. important the rest of the week we go down and then go back up. and -- as you mentioned some of us seeing the sprinkles. that was earlier today. that's now way down to the south. all of us seeing cloud cover take a look at our shot here. you can see the monument there in the distance. the -- washington monument. we have clouds to th
, but sometimes they're just playing checkers. eric cantor is much more the kind of guy, he has been very vocal about the need to trim debt. so it's logical that he would vote against it. they did wait until it passed. so they had some spots ability to their speakers and their leadership position. in the end, they know this has to go through, because we are out of time. john boehner votes for it more as a symbolic thing. he said yesterday if we cannot find a republican votes to amend this, i will just go for it. he feels a sense of responsibility to accept a deal that's coming down. host: you have a piece on the blog that says house members have a message to speaker ehner -- what is the latest on that? guest: i think that is all we will see today. the house and senate are back in today. the senate back into thinking they might get a sandy relief bill. what happened yesterday was a rare occurrence where you had a bunch of republicans and democrats to show up at the last minute after the cliff vote and they were really upset. delma had about a minute to talk. a lot of them used strong language, s
. then had you majority leader eric cantor and republican whip kevin mccarthy who voted no. cantor said he was disappointed with the bill. here's how it was sold to republicans. >> so by making republican tax cuts permanent, we're one step closer to comprehensive tax reform that will help strengthen our economy and create more and higher paychecks for american workers. >> what's interesting is with a lot of big bills you see the speaker get up and try to fire up his troops to vote for it you will see the majority leader eric cantor try to get up and fire up the base to vote for it. in this case, it was left to the chairman of the house ways and means committee, dave camp. jon? >> jon: not a lot of holiday cheer among two of the most powerful people on the hill. >> that's right. you could definitely feel the tension going higher and higher the closer it got to the deadline. last friday at the white house, fox news has confirmed speaker john boehner told senate majority leader harry reid to, quote: f himself twice after reid had said boehner was running the house like a dictatorship and sai
and will do it. a lot of people looked at that and said is there a rift, is this eric cantor positioning himself for a coup. i think that's fairly unlikely. the house speaker boehner certainly has plenty of support going into his election tomorrow where he's expected to be reelected the speaker of the house when the 113th congress convenes. so i think folks are reading a little into that. but certainly it was eric cantor being a little who are conservatives. >> many are very angry about this deal. we saw this tweet from the tea party expression, amy cramer said i'm disgusted with what happened in the house last night. there will be consequences. what will the blow back be, do you think? >> in the short term, i don't think there's much at all. and certainly many folks believe that the tea party may be losing steam if anything under this new deal. but remember, as brianna pointed out, we'll be back here again in march. you have the debt limit, the government maxed out its credit card december 31st. treasury is now taking extraordinary measures for the government to pay its bills. you have
is john boehner and eric cantor. even politico was saying a year ago they call for a truce, their staffs were trying to find a way to work together. speaker vote is coming up january 3rd. boehner had a bad beating in that plan b vote. >> i think the main thing that boehner has going for him in the rivalry is he has the worst job in the world. >> is it really the worst job in the world? >> certainly the worst job in congress. speaker boehner has to sit there and eat a lot of stuff you wouldn't necessarily want to eat because there are a lot of republicans who basically want to emote, they want to act up and speaker boehner just has to take it and try to hammer deal and eric cantor, if he goes into boehner's role, he has to do the same thing boehner wants to do. >> the starting quarterback hates the number two quarterback and boehner, if he was smart, he should have dispatched him a long time ago and said, young man, i'm going to put you out to pasture if you pull that crap on me again. he made a mistake over the debt ceiling. >> the two of them are working very closely during the negotiat
number two eric cantor the majority leader put out a statement putting the onus on president obama and for the reason why there has not been a deal so far. basically saying they can't move forward in the house without some sort of action in the senate the next few days. what they left out of that, unfortunately, is the reason why they are waiting on the senate to do something. the senate coming into session tomorrow, by the way. is that speaker boehner couldn't get enough votes to move forward on a plan to avert the cliff last week. that's why we are where we are right now. the president will be boarding air force one in a few hours. flying overnight back to washington. is he likely to bring together congressional leaders in the next couple days when he he gets back to washington. time is running out, harris. >> harris: no breaking news in any of that. but we did see some today. treasury secretary tim geithner saying we could hit the debt ceiling the day after we follow off the fiscal cliff if no deal is reached. >> that's right. december 31st. a lot going on there. a lot of these
we've got to come up with something, i can't do anything. and you have eric cantor waiting in the wings ready to become the leader of the republican party if bane ser challenged. >> how do the markets react tomorrow if it does get the green light? >> i think they'll be positive until the next crisis and you'll have me again talking about the debt ceiling increase and the sequestration which they pushed for two months, but they'll get a reprieve. there's sort of a modest certainty for about two months. >> you bring up a very good point because this is sort of kicking the can down the road. >> once again, yeah. it's just to get through to the next crisis. >> yeah, all right. mark platkin, we'll be talking again soon. thanks. >>> to metro now with another violent attack on board a bus. this time, a woman stabbed in the chest. it happened southeast around 2:15 this morning. a second woman was hit in the head. the attacker ran away on foot until the bus driver pulled over and called police. >>> police in williams county gathered tonight to honor an officer killed in a crash. thi
republicans, speaker john boehner and eric cantor were split. also notable, budget chairman paul ryan voted yes. the final gop count, 151 against the bill and 85 in favor. >> it was all about maintaining, if you will, the status quo of kick the can down the road. >> there's no spending cuts. we're adding $4 billion a day to the debt. the senate will fail miserably in cutting spending. >> much better to make this deal now and move on to those other fights at the appropriate time, which is, by the way, just around the corner. >> some conservative pundits have been blasting republicans and newt gingrich tweeted "the gop has been engauged ged in a two-month dance of defeat and surrender. >> good morning, happy new year. >> good morning. >> happy new year. >> david, do you agree with your former boss? did republicans surrender? >> no, they were just faced with a very difficult choice. obviously in terms of the tax cuts, that's something that if republicans wanted to see go forward, we've been talking about that for years, it was originally a republican proposal but a lot of members were clearly
-pong match there. and we're just learning, dana, eric cantor is telling reporters that he does not support the bill. he does not support the bill. he didn't say whether he would vote against it. he said he did not support the bill. joining us from capitol hill, representative peter welch, the democrat of vermont. thank you so much for being here with us. one of the big questions, do you have any hesitations about voting for the bill that has passed the senate? >> i don't have hesitation about voting for it. there is a lot of things i don't like. and a lot of us thought that the president should have held firm on the revenues at $1.6 trillion, because that's got to be a significant component of a long term balanced deal. on the other hand, we weren't able to get it, partly because of the practical realities of legislating in this town. so what we have now is a middle class tax cut, they're going to stay at the lower rates. we have broken the iron grip of grover norquist on the republican party, at least in the senate, and taxes have gone up on the top 2% and that will help us if going forwa
conference one week ago when the talk was in the air, eric cantor stood by his side, and that was a signal that if anybody is going to challenge him, it might be eric cantor. he will not challenge. he is absolutely on board. host: david lightman, thank you as always for being with us. guest: thank you for having me. host: we will check in with you again and your dog. every friday we look at america by the numbers. today, we want to focus on the issue of hunger in america. "washington journal" continues. negotiations are resuming this afternoon at 3:00 p.m. eastern time. [applause] >> there are cynics said that a party platform is something nobody bothers to read and it does not amount to much. whether it is different this time than it has ever been before, i believe the republican party has a platform that is a banner of bold, unmistakable callers with no faded or pastel shades. >> you see the evolution of ronald reagan. he speaks in his speech about hope, a future without nuclear weapons, but it is more progressive and optimistic in 1976. you can see his anti-communism is evolving. his cu

vote comes and goes, the speaker is gone and told one of eric cantor's aides that the bill was -- connell: two part question to add it up because we have to go in a second. do you think or do you know anything about a possible vote today and what do you say to the conservative argument that come of that say we voted on this fiscal cliff deal that didn't have any spending cuts and couldn't stomach another votes on spending and some members of the new york delegation brought up to me apparently loaded the bill up with pork. any truth to that? >> absolute lies. whatever was in the bill that was considered pork was put in for other states, put in the senate, all taken out. governor christie and governor cuomo and governor bloomberg give a breakdown of the republican leadership, we were told it was satisfactory. there was no pork. i wish they would tell the truth. connell: no vote you know of on the schedule today? >> no. 100 people are missing today. the house is not in session today. connell: congressman king from capitol hill, talk to you again soon. back to the markets, big
it and send it back is what eric cantor and others wanted. the problem with sending it back is there would be no one to send it to. the senate left the building. the house would have gone back and said we're going to keep our apbldz in. what speaker boehner did is join the minority of republicans. he voted, so 85 republicans said yes, but 172 said no. essentially they violated their own unwritten hastert rule and used the majority of democrats to pass this bill. longtime conservatives see it as a rau for the president. >>steve: even in the leadership of the republican party you've got john boehner and paul ryan voting for it. then you've got eric cantor, the majority whip, voting against it. at the core, all the republicans had to hold their nose because they do not as a party like the idea of taxes going up on anybody. now the way it stands is if you are very successful and you make at least $400,000 a year, your taxes are going to go up to about 40%. for everybody watching this program now, your payroll taxes are going up. last year it was about 4.2% exactly, and starting this morning it
eric cantor was with him all along, still is, and they're pointing the finger of blame at speaker john boehner, openly encouraging the idea that there's a rift between the two. >> there's a squabble, obviously, between speaker boehner and leader cantor, they voted separately on the fiscal cliff. since cantor had taken a lead role here some have speculated that boehner wasn't as friendly to it as he might have otherwise been. >> reporter: cantor's office tells me that the two are in communication and that cantor support the speaker boehner. the two are scheduled to meet with the new york and new jersey delegations to discuss sandy aid in less than an hour, megyn. >> megyn: shannon, thank you. >> we're going to hit every single recommendation that's been put forward. some individuals have been held accountable inside of the state department and what i've said is that we are going to fix this to make sure that this does not happen again. because these are folks that i send into the field. we understand that there are dangers involved, but you know, when he read the report and it confirms
